Life lesson No Competition in Destiny 

​I was jogging this morning and I noticed a person in front of me,

 about 1/2 a kilometre.

 I could tell he was running a

 little slower than me and I thought, good, I shall try to catch him.

 I had about a kilometre to go my path before I needed to turn off. So I started running faster and faster. Every block,

 I was gaining on him just a little bit. After just a few minutes I was only about 100 yards behind him, so I really picked up the pace and push myself. You would have thought I was running in the last leg of London Olympic competition. I was determined to catch him.

 Finally, I did it! I caught and passed him by. On the inside I felt so good. “I beat him”

 Of course, he didn’t even know we were racing. After I passed him, I realised I had been so focused on competing against him that

 I had missed my turn. I had gone nearly six blocks past it.

 I had to turn around and go all back. Isn’t that what happens in life when we

 focus on competing with

 co-workers, neighbours,

 friends, family, trying to outdo them or trying to prove that we are more successful or more important?

 We spend our time and energy running after them and we miss out on our own

 paths to our God given destinies.

 The problem with unhealthy competition is that its a

 never ending cycle.

 There will always be somebody ahead of you,

 someone with better job,

 nicer car, more money in the bank, more education,

 a prettier wife/gf, a more handsome husband/bf,

 better behaved children, etc.

 But realize that “You can be the best that you can be, you are not competing with no one.”

 Some people are insecure because they pay too much attention to what others are doing, where others are going,

 wearing and driving.Take what God has given you,

 the height, weight and personality. Dress well and wear it proudly! You’ll be blessed by it. Stay focused and live a healthy life. There’s no competition in DESTINY,

 run your own RACE and wish others WELL!.
